We purchased this CBD product and tested it at independent testing facilities to measure levels of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and compare the results to the manufacturer's claims. Here are the results. (Learn more about our review process.)
The unadulterated test results on this page come directly from these certificates of analysis from two independent labs, which we pay directly. These are two independent lab tests of one product, at one point in time. We do not guarantee that all products or labs will produce the same results. Lab results may differ based on the different methodologies of testing used by each lab or inconsistencies in the product. Added ingredients may affect lab results. Volume of creams and edibles may change due to factors such as temperature, and this may impact lab results. Learn more about our review process.
Medterra claims to have 33 mg of total cannabinoids per 1 mL serving. Lab A found 37.59 mg of total cannabinoids, including 36 mg of CBD, about 0.40 mg of CBG and 0.40 mg of CBC, and 0.23 mg of CBN.
Instructions: You can take this product sublingually or mix it with a food or drink.
Medterra claims this is a Broad-spectrum extract, which should include CBD, multiple other cannabinoids, and zero THC. Our lab tests confirmed a broad-spectrum extract with CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG, and most importantly, it contains zero THC.
The labs found that Medterra contained 13% to 22% more total cannabinoids than their label suggested. "B" and "C" scores are reasonably accurate because labs test for different cannabinoids and have varying testing methods. Lab A would have given an "A" score if Medterra claimed this was 1000 mg of CBD instead of total cannabinoids.
Medterra is the CBD brand that I recommend most for people who don't want THC. This Laguna Hills, California company is priced reasonably and sold throughout the United States. They've earned the CBD Examine Authenticity Award for squeaky clean THC-free CBD products. I tested their CBD oil and pain cream in the past and was impressed.
This broad-spectrum oil is a fantastic value at 5.5 cents per milligram of CBD. The average broad-spectrum extract is about 10 cents per milligram of CBD. However, this is a real broad-spectrum extract, and that's hard to put a price tag on. See why below in the strength section.
This tastes super-duper good. Strawberry mint, hmmm, hum. It just tastes like strawberry mint gum. It has terpenes in it, but I taste zero hemp flavor, and that's a good thing. According to their updated website, this formula is just organic MCT oil, hemp extract, and natural organic flavors.
The labs found 36 to 40 milligrams of CBD per milliliter. That's a potent dose. However, it doesn't come with THC or any of THC's side effects. You don't need to worry about getting high. If you haven't used CBD before, I would recommend lower doses before working your way up to a full dropper. The dropper is labeled to make smaller quantities easy to measure. This oil also has around 0.40 mg of CBG, 0.40 mg of CBC, and over 0.20 mg of CBN. I'm shocked. Finally, we have a broad-spectrum product that claims to have these rarer cannabinoids and they deliver. Almost all of the broad-spectrums that I have tested thus far have been just CBD or they’ve had trace levels of other cannabinoids that are insignificant.
*It's common to see CBD doses at 5 mg, 15 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg for consumer products. Researchers use much larger doses (25 mg to 1500 mg of CBD). CBD dosing is highly individualized.
It’s almost a clear liquid that is light and refreshing. The dropper is labeled with milliliter markers. Both the bottle and box look high quality and professional. The box has both imprinted and raised glossy text that feels premium. The bottle has a subtle shine to it and if you look close in the light, you can see a glossy white-on-white text that states "broad spectrum". It's the little things.
Medterra is a reliable company, check. Reasonable price, check. Tasty, super-duper check. Strength, oh, yes, check. I'm still just glad I found a real broad-spectrum extract. Good looks, double-check.
Medterra offers CBD oil, broad-spectrum CBD, CBD gummies, topicals, and supplements.
